Use our lesson plans to bring the wonders of water into your classroom!

We encourage teachers and home-schooling parents to download and teach our lesson plans. They use exciting hands-on activities that engage students in water and wastewater science and empower them to prevent pollution, use water wisely, and respect their environment.
Each presentation is fully scripted and includes preparation instructions and supporting activity pages. For information on equipment and supplies that may be available to borrow, email the DSRSD Public Information office or call 925-875-2282.

In the past, the District sent a credentialed teacher into local classrooms to teach these lessons. Due to budget cuts, we are not currently offering classroom presentations. Zone 7 Water Agency, the Tri-Valley's wholesale water supplier, does offer classroom presentations. Email the Zone 7 Schools Program Coordinator or call (925) 454-5757.
